Hi Guy"s, who knows how long the throttle arm is at the firewall. Is the V-8 one longer, mine was a 6cyl. car and it looks short. I can't get full carb. opening with it the way it is. The length would be nice to know. Thanks T

I don't know the right length, but you have two options if you don't have original parts want to modify or fabricate. Length the arm at the firewall or mount the linkage lower on the carburetor arm.

TC.....Easy enough to make one......Get some 1/4" rod from the HW store.....Cut to length and thread both ends.

Yep, I do need the V-8 arm, it's longer. The guy that did the swap just flipped the 6 cyl. arm up. Thanks all. T
